Blenko Glass Vintage Blenko by Myers

Myers   #6742
Hi Doc,
This is the other photo that was created for my family friend in Georgia. Of course it had to be a Myers grouping. I just really enjoy this very heavy decanter design. For those of you who have not handled this piece before it is indeed one of the heaviest pieces that I have handled. The solid crystal bottom of the decanter as well as the solid airtwist stopper makes this a stout piece. This is Myers Blenko #6724 in Honey, Olive Green, and Turquoise. Blenko also produced this decanter in Lemon and Tangerine but in those two designs the stoppers do not have the color of the body in the stopper. Instead they just have a plain crystal stopper with the airtwist. The catalog also notes that the piece is not available in "Plum". That would have been a wonderful color combination to me, but alas it just didn't occur.

Hope you enjoy,
Bruce S.
